“The journey is never ending. There’s always gonna be growth, improvement, adversity; you just gotta take it all in and do what’s right, continue to grow, continue to live in the moment.”
– Antonio Brown
I have been at a crossroads for the past few months. Two different opportunities presented themselves to me, both amazing and life changing.
Some of you who follow along on social media, may of seen me ask for some advice on which direction to go in. And I thank you for all the sincere and thoughtful words you offered <3
One opportunity was to grow the studio and the courses/workshops I offer. I was to take over the entire space, grow my wonderful team of instructors and push forward to eventually open a larger, ground floor, retail space.
The other opportunity was to pursue my art full time, full-fill two different apprenticeships that presented themselves and bring my artwork to more boutiques and shops in Ontario.
Both paths are creative, both are dreams of mine. But, to make a decision, it was time to listen to my soul.
The past few years have been a wild ride. I like to believe I have grown spiritually and gotten to know myself more.
I’ve met so many wonderful people through the studio and thoroughly enjoyed creating with them. But come January, 2019 the Studio will be closing down.
What does this mean?
It means I won’t be offering workshops or courses taught by myself or others (except for the occasional pop up workshop, led by yours truly). I won’t have a studio space accessible to the public. I will be leaving the space and will be working from home to pursue my art and participate in two amazing apprenticeships.
This was a difficult decision to make, but one I believe my soul truly needs for the path I am currently on.
I want to thank you all for your amazing support over the years and please no this is not the end!
You may still see the occasional pop up workshop in the community. Within time, I will reopen the studio and have an amazing team of talented artists to bring you creative workshops again.
Until then, you will still be able to take workshops at the Studio for the month of November and December. This will be your last opportunity to do so for some time. All these workshops are a fantastic way to carve out some time for yourself and make a creative holiday gift to give this year.
Thank you everyone for your support. I hope you continue to follow along on my next adventure <3
